June 30, 1960
PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD COMPANY, APPELLEE,
TRANSPORT WORKERS UNION OF AMERICA, CIO, ET AL., APPELLANTS.
Before MCLAUGHLIN, KALODNER and STALEY, Circuit Judges.
The May 28, 1960 order of the district court allowed a preliminary injunction "until final hearing and judgment, or until further order of this court (defendants, upon good cause shown, may apply for and obtain a modification of this order)."
Appellants argue at length in their brief that the district judge, in refusing to specifically state in his order that the injunction would be vacated on July 19, 1960,*fn1 exceeded his jurisdiction.
The above quoted language is the customary phrasing of this type of order. There is nothing improper about it. Nor does it present warrant for any inference that the district judge will not deal with this matter in accordance with his duty as the occasion arises. The application was plainly premature. Inter alia, as was vividly developed at oral argument there is nothing to prevent appellants from immediately taking steps to proceed to final hearing and judgment.
The order of the district court will be affirmed.
